Kessler Park has long been considered one of Dallas’ prettiest and most architecturally distinctive neighborhoods. The neighborhood is actually made up of three contiguous neighborhoods—Kessler Park, Stevens Park and East Kessler Park. The neighborhoods are separated by Stevens Park Golf Course to the west and Sylvan Avenue to the east which is one of the primary access points to the neighborhood.
As one of the city’s only areas with rolling hills, meandering boulevards and a canopy of majestic trees, Kessler Park offers a peace and tranquility that is rare in the heart of the city. Only five minutes from downtown Dallas, the Arts District, and Victory Park’s shopping, dining and sports venues, Kessler Park is on the southern edge of the planned Trinity River Parks, with spectacular views of the Dallas skyline.
Home buyers benefit from a wide variety of architectural styles featuring charming brick, stone and stucco cottages, English Tudors, Spanish Eclectic, Prairie & Craftsman, Mediterranean homes and stately mansions with distinctive architectural integrity. Home sizes range from 1100 square feet to over 7,000 square foot mansions. Lot sizes vary considerably but are often just shy of a 1/4 acre to some estates with more than 2 acres.
Once discovered, most residents never leave the beauty of the neighborhood and homes. This sort of stability partially explains why Kessler Park has maintained its opulence when some other Dallas neighborhoods didn’t fair as well over the decades.
With the planned Trinity River Project and Santiago Calatrava bridges as new gateways to Kessler Park and North Oak Cliff, great things are expected for the area in the coming years. The restored Bishop Arts District provides an outstanding array of restaurants, art galleries, shopping and entertainment for Kessler area residents.
With immediate access to I-30 and I-35, Kessler Park is only a short drive to downtown, Uptown, Oak Lawn, Turtle Creek, the Park Cities, Mid Cities, Love Field and D/FW Airport. A private school, The Kessler School, is located right in the heart of the neighborhood, as well as well-regarded Rosemont Elementary school.
